About Man Singh Palace

Practically a city of palaces, Gwalior is also popular for the Man Singh Palace. Located within the Gwalior Fort, it is a splendid example of Hindu architecture of the 14th and 15th century. The fort spreads out over an area of 3 km and comprises six such palaces. The Man Singh Palace was made under the rule of Tomar ruler Raja Man Singh. Construction of the palace was done between 1486 and 1516. There are two open courtyards here, bordered by rooms located on two floors. In total, the palace has four floors. There rooms are conspicuous by their large size. They were likely used to conduct musical concerts and host other cultural events. You can see spaces that were probably used by the royal women to witness these events. The walls are designed with blue paintings adorned with green and gold strokes. The palace also has a Jauhar Kund, which was used by the queens to immerse themselves in fire if the husband died. This ancient palace also has two basement floors. Intriguing circular cells are found here that were used as prisons in ancient times. This is also the place where Mughal emperor Aurangzeb jailed and killed his kin Murad.
